My Crazy Life: Time for Cookie Swap!

December 7, 2011             Things have really been in a state of chaos here lately, or so it feels. Thanksgiving night begins a week of scurrying non-stop for me as my annual cookie swap is always the first Sunday in December. The invitations were sent out a long time ago, but I still have to call for those RSVPs. Saturday was a huge cooking day for me. It began with making the “soup of the…

My Crazy Life – December 3, 2011- The “perfect” Christmas tree

A friend posted on her face book page today that she allowed her two sons to decorate the Christmas tree. She was taking a break and wondering if she should leave it or fix it. I posted that I would leave it. Her post brought back a wonderful memory that I had forgotten. Every year I would decorate the “perfect” tree.

It seems that I have become one of those people who only wear shoes when they have to (when I say I have to). While you might not think it strange in itself, you would if you knew me.             There was a time in my life (for thousands of…

My Crazy Life – October 26, 2011 – “Nana May I”

Today was early dismissal and I picked up the grandchildren. Andrew had a fist full of reward certificates that he has earned for being good. He had several for “Eat with a friend”, “Water Passes”, and even one to “Eat with the teacher”, although he indicated he may let that particular one expire. He chatted non-stop while we waited in the pickup line for Cara. Cara hopped in the car and took over the air…
